Potent Anti-Inflammatory 5-LOXIN

Researchers discovered that 3-O-acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid (AKBA), trade name 5-LOXIN, fights osteoarthritis. It is believed that it does this by reducing inflammation. It combats inflammation by selectively inhibiting 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX), which is a byproduct of arachidonic acid. (Note 1.) Boswellia extract has been found to genetically influence at least 113 genes, reducing inflammation. (Note 2.)
